Arp on the Tracker confuses me…

I have watch a few videos and I understand how to use it.

BUT:

Can someone give me a 3 grader explanation to why one has to use the midi in the second fx slot and ARP doesn’t just propagate the proper note pattern?

Think of it like this: The Arp command has to know which note interval to play. If you would simply put the arp only on 1 note, it will simply repeat the same note with set time interval.
that would be the same as the Roll command.
But I agree, more fx slots would be welcome, as the arp command fills them up.

“More fx slots would be welcome”
Yeah agreed, perhaps you can give up a track and add it’s two fx slots to another track. That would be cool. Probably require mega code changes though…
